Whoever started this "suitable boat" issue?
In my opinion, and it is my opinion a suitable boat is what the owner thinks is suitable to them,opinions of others do not mean a thing.
Its seems to me there is a bit of envy,some people dislike certain boats because they think it is a status symbol,ie the bigger the boat the bigger the ego,this is utter nonsense,people buy what they want and whats suitable for them,its their hard earned cash that pays for it and they should be able to enjoy it the way they want to.
I just wonder whoever is moaning about the suitabilty of boats,what boat they would buy if they had a lottery win,me its quite simple,having lived in the broads area all my 59 years,I would buy a boat which in my opinion is suitable,
A SEA GOING CRUISER that way I can enjoy the best of both worlds both offshore and the inland waters,if by chance I could not get under some bridges, so be it,its my choice.
